Voters of Hailey, the time is now

     Thanks to the outstanding efforts of the Wood River High School Environmental Club, the voters of Hailey will be given the opportunity to ban “single-use” plastic shopping bags.

     To help educate voters, the WRHS Environmental Club presented a documentary titled “Bag It” at the Liberty Theatre. The documentary gave a truly entertaining and informative perspective on plastic in our world today, told by a person who just wanted to know more about the “single-use” plastic bag. This film is a must see for all voters.

     It seems that many of the problems caused by plastic in our world today were for the most part created unknowingly by us as consumers (as well as the plastic manufacturers). Now that we know some of the problems that we have created, we can begin to solve them (we know that the plastics manufacturers will do nothing to solve the problems). With your vote to ban “single-use” plastic bags, we can begin the process of solving these problems.

     The Wood River High School Environmental Club deserves our sincere gratitude and appreciation for bringing this timely issue to our attention and giving each of us the opportunity to make a difference!
